For New Years, I spent it in Victoria Falls. This was a blast! It was also my first New Years away from family and friends. Pretty much I was in a different country half way across the world all by myself. Hearing about the Vic Falls Carnival, I looked it up and bought a ticket. I was going to enjoy my New Years and it was going to be a blast!

While visiting the Chimanimani Mountains, the overland group I met there said they would be in Vic Falls for New Years as well. They had invited me to come hang out with them since I was traveling alone. Making my way to the other backers a few blocks away, I was able to find them and we caught up on our recent travels.

It was definitely going to be a blast with many different artists playing. Showing up around 8:30, the music had already begun and there was food and drinks available. The weather on the other hand was not cooperating too much. It was a bit chilly and raining! With the festival being outside, we were all going to get soaked.
